NONSUCH SHRUBS – for the trend hunters

Shrubs are fruit and vinegar based syrups that add depth and complexity to both alcoholic and non-alcoholic serves. More than a simple cordial, due to the mouthfeel attained by the vinegar element of the shrub, the syrups can either be added to non-alcoholic cocktail recipes or simply be mixed with tonic or soda to create an impressively delicious non-alcoholic serve. For those looking to participate in mindful drinking come January, Nonsuch has four flavoured shrub syrups available: Caramelised Pineapple & Ginger, Wild Hedgerow & Rose, Bittersweet Apple & Cardamom and Blood Orange & Bitter Lemon, as well as an array of pre-mixed shrub sodas.
Nonsuch products are available to purchase from the Nonsuch online shop, prices as follows:
Syrups (1 x 500ml bottle RRP £22)
Sodas (3 x 250ml bottles RRP £9.99 / 6 x 250ml bottles RRP £18)
